Really interesting article on methods for anonymising and compartmentalising (illegal) sales operations, to resist law enforcement identification of any participant. Details of #tradecraft, tech, reputation, distribution, payment systems, dead drops and all sorts of fascinating stuff.
The Internet is full of commercial activity and it should come at no surprise that even illegal commercial activity is widespread as well.

Phoenicis PlayOnLinux 5.0 Alpha 2 Released for easy installation of Windows games and software on Linux

PlayOnLinux is a piece of software which allows you to easily install and use numerous games and apps designed to run with Microsoft® Windows®. It essentially customises and tweaks WINE specifically for each supported game or software. So if you are struggling to get one of these supported games or applications to run, you could try PlayOnLinux. It has a more GUI based approach to managing WINE settings too.

It does add some additional complexity in that if you uninstall WINE or PlayOnLinux those applications can break. I used to have lots of trouble when restoring this data between Linux upgrades so personally, I've resorted to just using plain WINE on its own.

But the Alpha release of PlayOnLinux is a major step forward so many may want to try it out.
